Valérie Belin – ‘Black Eyed Susan’

Valérie Belin‘s series ‘Black Eyed Susan’ – interweaving images of flowers and women to question the concept of consummate beauty as pure decoration.

Using the plastic beauty of the ideal post-war female and mixing it boldly with plenty of flowers, the artist created dreamy painterly portraits of the excessive decorativeness to evoke our societal stereotyped visions fractured through the layers of time.
